This game has the great and exciting feel of both kingdom hearts and Final Fantasy. You are in a team with 2 other people you can change, It's a free attack based game(not taking turns hitting your enemy) with a reward system and an instant transition back to your quest. You fight then your on your way with what you were doing. The only thing that is a little annoying is the voices that come out of nowhere at random moments, but they can be switched off which is really good.

This is not a game where you can just run into a battle. You have to know your enemies weaknesses, attack patterns, and tricks (if any). Also, the only thing you have to go by to get through each level is a guided path with lots of dead ends which can get you lost very fast. But that is what makes a game entertaining.
One last thing. Being the PS2 and comparing the PS3 and 360, this game has some really good graphics. I was really surprised when I saw how big the game was and the amount of detail that went into the game.

I highly recommend this game for any adventurer gamer in your household.

This game is a near perfect game for anyone who likes this type of game. My only problem is that you have to stay in 1 area every once in awhile and sometimes the enemies are twice as strong as the last place you just were at so you do get stuck sometimes.

Rogue Galaxy takes me back to a time when stand-alone RPGs were being made for the fans and not for the funds. I mean, you remember the PS1's amazing RPGs despite the spin-offs? And how the PS2 also had some good RPGs but more spin-offs? And how the PS3 promises us only spin-offs? Yeah, it looks like the otaku's gonna be moving on to 360 for story, whoda'thunkit, but the PS2's not dead yet. Rogue Galaxy, one of the last great games not about horses for our rectangular friend, is an awesome and beautiful game full of good voiceover, plenty of mini-games, a fun throwback story, and a really cool battle system. (Warning: It's not turn-based.) I don't know if the game'll give you 100 hours like it promises, but if it even gives you 15 (not saying the game's short at all. By no means!), it's still a better bet than Samurai Warriors 2: Empires, you know? If you were a fan of the old-school RPG and can dig the new-school gameplay, Rogue Galaxy's something you need to try out.
